A new era

Peer retires from Moffat County Social Services after 43 years.

On Friday one of Moffat County’s longest tenured employees will retire after almost 44 years of service. And as one might expect the number one thing on Marie Peer’s to do list is to take a well-deserved vacation. But the 65-year-old retiring director of the Moffat County Department of Social Services isn’t going to Hawaii, Alaska or some exotic overseas locale. The family is treating Peer to her first visit to Washington, D.C., which is more than fine for the self-described history buff.
